Before relocating to Illinois, Clements and his family spent time in Lake Maine in a cabin. In the cabin, there was no telephone television email or doorbell. Nonetheless, there was still ample time to swim and fish. During night times, there was ample time to read. During Andrew Clements’s senior year in high school, his English teacher gave him back a poem that he had penned down.
There were two main things about the poem, which made it amazing; first, Clements had scored an A-, a phenomenon that was extremely rare in the English class. Secondly, the teacher had written with a red pen on the paper, “The poem is so funny, It should be published.” The feeling that Clements got after reading the teacher’s comments eventually sent him to Northwestern University, feeling like he was a superb writer.
At Springfield University, the professors encouraged him because he was to pen a literary major. However, many at times, Andrew Clements did not write so much on his own.
